  5. "You can be a teacher."

"You can be a teacher."

Translation:Você pode ser um professor.

March 23, 2013



As a learner I wonder whether the "um" is unnecessary - or even wrong. I thought: one day "Ele é professor" not "Ele é um professor" so much the same after pode ser. I suspect Duolingo is misleading me by marking me wrong "You need the article "um" here". Do I?


You can choose whether or not use the article in this sentence.


Why isnt "você pode estar um professor" a good answer?
